What do you think of that Sears (SHLD) article in the Sunday Times?-- Gordy from Philadelphia

James J. Cramer:

I think the negativity in that article was way overdone, and it didn't state anything we don't already know. I own Sears for my charitable trust,

ActionAlertsPLUS, but I don't own it because Sears and Kmart stores are such wonderful places to shop. I own it because the stores are improving, and the company has a lot of valuable real estate it can sell to other retailers looking for new store locations.

Jimmy, do you like Electronic Artsundefined?-- Connie from New Jersey

James J. Cramer:

Electronic Arts is a great stock for the long term if you can handle the volatility. I think this video-game console cycle will be very big, and EA has an incredible lineup of big hits. I don't think this will be a great holiday season for them, but this is a stock that can be held for years, not just a quarter or two.
